Saturday Afternoon


Today is going by way too fast.  I got Petey back from the Vee Dub crew and she’s running good.  She has to go back next weekend because she has a turn signal light out and it’s an LED strip that has to be replaced.  No worries on that tho.  I had to deal with a new guy today and he looked at me a bit incredulously when I asked why the light wasn’t repaired.  “It’s a 10 year old car.” he said.  I had to chastise the regulars for not filling him in on my preferences for repairs on my car.  I think he understands now.

I spent the afternoon cleaning up my one rode bed and cutting back the bushes in front of the window.  All of old ground cloth and old mulch if off and we’ll hopefully replace it soon provided the weather cooperates.  I had one rose bush that didn’t survive the winter and I think I’ll replace it and add two more bushes while I’m at it.  Then new ground cloth and new mulch and we can chalk that one up as done.  Maybe I should repaint the foundation first tho before I get too far down the rabbit hole on this one.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

    1. pick the dead flowers off the bush after they bloom and die. that helps the plant produce more roses. we call it “deadheading” here in the states. I’m sure you have a similar name in Portuguese.
